Here are some key games for SiriusXM NHL Network Radio fans this week across the league, including the Heritage Classic between Calgary and Winnipeg.

Saturday, October 26th – Calgary Flames at Winnipeg Jets
10:00 PM Eastern – SiriusXM 91

The 2019 Heritage Classic takes place in Regina, Saskatchewan…roughly right in the middle between the cities of Calgary and Winnipeg. A perfect place for an outdoor NHL game! Both the Flames and Jets can play better than they have this season, so this isn’t just about hockey romance; two points are on the line. And for those hockey fans in Atlanta, yes, this is/was the Atlanta Flames versus the Atlanta Thrashers.

Sunday, October 27th – Boston Bruins at New York Rangers
7:00 PM Eastern – SiriusXM 220

What a great way to end the weekend! Bruins and Rangers at The Garden! These two Original Six rivals lock horns sporting different records. After falling a game short this past spring in the Stanley Cup Final, Boston look like they’re determined to get back there and right that wrong. The Rangers missed the post-season cut, and out of the gate, aren’t faring much better this time around. But it’s early…

Monday, October 28th – Arizona Coyotes at Buffalo Sabres
7:00 PM Eastern – SiriusXM 91

Last season, would this matchup have been on anybody’s radar outside of these two markets? It sure is this season, as both the Coyotes and Sabres have been pleasant surprises out of the gate. Darcy Kuemper has been outstanding in the Phoenix net, as has Carter Hutton for Buffalo, disregarding that 6-2 loss recently to the Rangers. Sabres’ captain Jack Eichel continues his evolution as one of the top players in the NHL.

Tuesday, October 29th – Philadelphia Flyers at Pittsburgh Penguins
7:00 PM Eastern – SiriusXM 91

Always worth your time to check in on the latest edition of the Battle of Pennsylvania. This time around, the Penguins will face the Flyers without Evgeni Malkin, though Sidney Crosby always seems to step up his already impressive game when Malkin is missing. So far the Flyers are keeping close in the season long race for an Eastern Conference wildcard spot.

Wednesday, October 30th – Tampa Bay Lightning at New Jersey Devils
7:00 PM Eastern – SiriusXM 91

While nobody realistically expected the Lightning to replicate last season’s amazing regular season, nobody thought they’d be as low in the standings as the Bolts were after the first 10 games. It’s all about getting to the playoffs, and then turning the jets on. It would be a stretch to think Tampa won’t be back in the post-season come this April, and after flaming out in the first round this past April, they’re looking to avoid that fate again. As for the Devils, it’s been largely a disappointing start for a team that has such high hopes in early October.

Thursday, October 31st – Calgary Flames at Nashville Predators
8:00 PM Eastern – SiriusXM 91

Hallowe’en Night bring us the treat of the Flames in Nashville. Calgary have been so-so so far this season, while the Predators have been pretty much money in the bank at home, including a recent white washing of the visiting Minnesota Wild.

Friday, November 1st – Vancouver Canucks at Anaheim Ducks
10:00 PM Eastern – SiriusXM 91

One of the pleasant surprises so far this campaign, the Canucks travel down the west coast to Orange County, and face a Ducks team that appear to have put the second half of last season behind them.
